How do I configure 5 servers that are running MS Virtual Server to share a SAN (iscsi) to hold the Virtual Server Images.
Posted on 2006-06-12
I am in the process of installing a group of virtual servers (Microsoft Virtual Server). I have a blade server with up to 10 blades and a EMC SAN. Each blade server has access to dual NICs, where one will be used for an HBA.
Each blade will be running Microsoft Server 2003 Enterprise with IScsi, and EMC Configuration Utility, IIS, and Microsoft Virtual Server R2 Enterprise.
The goal of the installation is to be able to run any of the Virtual servers (images) from any of the blades, shouild one of the blades go bad.
I understand that a shared disk is a quorum, but I haven't figured out how to install the cluster so that all servers have access to the shared disk. Are there any ariticles that talk about this scenario, or can someone provide some advice on how I can achieve the configuration that I am looking to do?
I would appreciate any help that I can get.
